Logstash collecting logs from multiple servers

Is there a way so that i can use logstash to input from multiple servers without me having to install filebeat on multiple servers? Please Help ... Any leads would be appreciated. :slightly_smiling_face:

PS:- I am working in cloud services team and my task is to collect logs and parse the logs from multiple customers' application servers.

If installing an agent on each server isn't an option and no existing agent (like syslog) can be made to ship the log files the only other option I can think of would be to share the log files via e.g. NFS.

@magnusbaeck can u elaborate on how to configure my logstash config file to input using (NFS or syslog).
Any link or source(e.g. documentation) that i can follow ?

If the servers export their logs files via NFS Logstash will be able to read them with a normal file input. A syslog example can e.g. be found here: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/current/config-examples.html
